Markets Served

Parker Precision Fluidics provides systems, modules, and components found in home health care, hospitals, and diagnostic and clinical laboratories. For analytical chemistry and clinical diagnostic markets, Parker’s technologies and services support device manufacturers in areas such as hematology, urinalysis, flow cytometry, mass spectroscopy, gas chromatography, and liquid chromatography.

Parker offers expertise in controlling, dispensing, and pumping fluid media. It specializes in miniaturized precision components and systems, and in the design of complete fluidic systems.

Whether the system is moving the sample, reagents, bleach, or waste, Precision Fluidics valves and pumps can provide the solution. Parker Smart Syringe Pump, one third the size and weight of standard 30 mm syringe pumps on the market today, was specifically developed to improve the performance of clinical diagnostic and analytical chemistry systems. This is accomplished by increasing resolution and bringing the pump to the point of dispense.

Parker Precision Fluidics Division offers a wide range of products to support pressure and flow control applications. From the carrier gas to the sample, we have a large selection of proportional valves, shut off valves and pressure controllers that provide industry-leading performance.


Our featured products include proportional valves (VSO), inert and semi-inert valves (Series 1&2, Liquid X, Series 3) fast response valves (Series 9, 99), and miniature diaphragm pumps (BTC, TTC, and LTC).

Parker’s products reflect smart design that results in simplified, high performing fluidic control. Lightweight components and compact sizes help OEMs build smaller instruments, decreasing instrument costs and footprint.

Our engineers and scientists have the industry expertise along with the manufacturing and project leadership to ensure our solutions work seamlessly in our customers’ products. Parker Precision Fluidics is ISO 13485 certified and offers consistent components that are RoHS and REACH compliant.
